Pinnacle Dermatology Acquires SkinSpeaks Dermatology Clinics in Twin Cities


This integration is yet another step in Pinnacle Dermatology’s strategy to build a strong, multi-site dermatology practice operating in multiple geographic markets.

Pinnacle Dermatology has acquired SkinSpeaks in the Twin Cities area including locations in Edina, Woodbury, Burnsville, Blaine and Crystal. 

“We welcome the patients and staff of SkinSpeaks to the Pinnacle Dermatology network of practices,” says Chad A. Eckes, CEO, Pinnacle Dermatology, in a news release. “We entered the Twin Cities market ten months ago with locations in Plymouth and Excelsior but through this acquisition, we’re now even closer to achieving our goal of being the premier provider of dermatologic care for the residents of the Twin Cities market. ”

“I am so happy to have chosen Pinnacle Dermatology as our partner,” says Patrick S. Carney, MD owner and supervisor of SkinSpeaks: Advancements in Dermatology and Spa M.D. “Pinnacle has offered us what we really need – access to resources to help run the business and the ability to put even more focus on providing the highest quality, patient-centered dermatologic care.  I love that Pinnacle has given me the opportunity to maintain medical autonomy in the practice that I have spent my career building, but excited to be supported with business-critical functions that will free up time and resources at our locations.  Ultimately, I believe this relationship will result in the best possible outcomes and experiences for our patients which has been my goal since day one.”   

Pinnacle Dermatology will continue serving the patients of SkinSpeaks at its five current locations. Medical insurance coverage will remain the same.
